  • Egyptian Army still holds 100 protesters, 50 missing
    I got the news from BBC – not Al Jazeera – which shows you got to follow multiple news sources.

  • Sandmonkey’s thoughts on Egyptian democracy
    In case you don’t tweet and aren’t following @Sandmonkey in Cairo, this is a compilation of his tweets today for about half an hour. He has about 25,000 followers so far.

A tweet from Sandmonkey asks for documents with sources to be emailed to masrleaks@gmail.com.

  • Sandmonkey, Ahmed Mohar and Wael Gohnim bring down Mubarak
    The April 6th Movement leader Ahmed Mohar, a tweeter @Sandmonkey (just one name out of hundreds) and a Google exec Wael Gohnim used Facebook, Twitter and TV and old-fashioned legwork to organize and perpetuate a national revolt that started with the youth and spread to the labor unions.
